Info for Blood Moon Rising (Bonus Track Edition)
With a career spanning over three decades and nine major-label releases, 2021 marks the thirtieth anniversary of Canada’s remarkable rock 3-piece The Tea Party and the full-length release titled “Blood Moon Rising” is the long overdue European followup to 2014’s acclaimed “The Ocean At The End” album. Featuring material written over the course of the last 5-years in Canada and Australia, “Blood Moon Rising” not only compiles 2019’s self-released “Black River” EP with another stack of fascinating new compositions.
“Putting together “Blood Moon Rising” has been an epic ordeal split into 2 parts with recordings and mixing taking place all over the world. After many years away from the European market we’re thrilled to return with such a varied collection of rock songs. In the time since our “The Ocean at the End” release the band has remained busy touring Canada, the USA and Australia, which included some monumental orchestra performances.
Once again Jeff Martin has helmed the production with the original Australian sessions for “Black River” taking place in 2015. We finished the recordings in Vancouver at the legendary Armoury Studios whose past clients have included AC/DC, REM, INXS and others. The band explores its rock, acoustic and blues influences over the album’s eleven tracks. Of particular note is the title track dedicated to our longtime front of house sound engineer John Watt, who sadly passed away during the recording of the record.
With the world thrown into chaos thanks to Covid the band is unsure when the world tour will commence for the record, but we are hoping for a return to European audiences can be included for the first time since 2001. Put some headphones on and enjoy the journey!” (Stuart Chatwood)

The Tea Party
Jeff Martin grew up in Windsor, Ontario, just across the Detroit River from the home of proto-punk and the Motown sound; he was also influenced by his blues-loving father. He formed the Tea Party with multi-instrumentalists Stuart Chatwood (bass, keyboards, mandolin, and harmonium) and Jeff Burrows (drums, percussion). Martin himself plays guitars, sitar, hurdy gurdy and harpguitar. Consequently, the trio's sound marries rock with elements of Middle Eastern, Celtic and Mediterranean music. Their 1993 album, Splendor Solis, sold over one million copies in Canada; The Edges of Twilight followed, trailed in 1997 by Transmission.
was raised in Windsor, Ontario and started playing the guitar at age 8. He formed his first band at age 11 and decided, then and there, that this is what he wanted to do with his life. In high school he was challenged by an older student to learn a blues-inspired Led Zeppelin song which inspired his father, a blues fan, who turned him on to the blues standards.
Jeff caught on quickly and could frequently be found jamming with professional bands from the Windsor Detroit area while still in his teens. During his teens he was also given a copy of The Beatles' Sergeant Pepper's album and his imagination was captured by the instrumentation of “Within You Without You.” Jeff developed a fascination with eastern tunings and instruments, a preoccupation he later indulged with great success as a member of the seminal Canadian band, The Tea Party. Jeff is also a producer. In addition to producing or co-producing all of The Tea Party's albums he has worked with artists such as Tenth Planet and Hundred Mile House and has recorded with David Usher, Conjure One and Todd Kerns.
